I bought this guitar because for one I am a Yamaha fan, secondly, I love the bass quality. The reworked cross bracing is a good choice for Yamaha. I also own a Yamaha FGX 800 C, an F-310P and a 1970's Yamaha 12 string. This is a great quality guitar. I only wish it had a Fishman pickup in it.

I bought one of these guitars back in the 1980's along with a hard shell case for $375 CAD, and travelled with it from coast to coast. That guitar still has amazing depth, volume and clarity, not to mention ease of playability of a finely crafted acoustic guitar, still plays like a charm! Needless to say, it has it's share of war wounds and distinct signs of wear & tear. So, I just ordered another one almost 40 years later! I feel like a kid in a candy store waiting patiently for It to be shipped directly from the Yamaha factory, and can hardly wait to get it ! The distinct sound of a twelve string is like pure magic, and the built in sound quality within the wood creates a unique natural reverb & sustain! Simply just an amazing guitar! I will be able to pass it on to my 6 yr old daughter when she is ready, it really is a sound investment as I know that it will definitely hold it's value, tone and charm for many years to come!
